2nd Workshop on Distributed User Interfaces: Collaboration and Usability (DUI 2012) at CHI 2012 (

ACM CHI 2012 (

Austin, Texas
May 5-10, 2012

Distributed User Interfaces (DUIs) have recently become a new field of research and development in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI). The DUIs have brought about drastic changes affecting the way interactive systems are conceived. DUIs have gone beyond the fact that user interfaces are controlled by a single end user on the same computing platform in the same environment. Traditional interaction is focused on the use of mobile devices such as, smartphones, tablets, laptops, and so on, tearing apart other environmental interaction resources such as large screens and multi-tactile displays, or tables. Under a collaborative scenario, users sharing common goals may take advantage of DUIs to carry out their tasks because they provide a shared environment where they are allowed to manipulate information in the same space at the same time. Under this hypothesis, collaborative DUIs scenarios open new challenges to usability evaluation techniques and methods. Thus, the goal of this workshop is to promote the discussion about the emerging topic of DUIs, answering a set of key questions: how collaboration can be improved by using DUI? , in which situations a DUI is suitable to ease the collaboration among users? , how usability standards can be employed to evaluate the usability of systems based on DUIs?


- Conceptual models for DUIs
- DUIs on ubiquitous environments
- Distributed User Interface design
- Public display interaction and DUIs
- DUIs and coupled displays
- DUIs and ambient intelligence
- Human factors in DUIs design
- Collaboration and DUIs
- Usability evaluation in DUIs
- DUIs on learning environment


Participants are required to submit a 4 page position paper formatted according to HCI Archive Format (
Papers should be submitted through EasyChair (

Please note that all workshop participants must register for both the workshop and for at least one day of the CHI 2012 conference as workshops are supposed to be a part of the CHI conference.

Extended versions of a selection of high quality papers will be proposed to be submitted to a Special Issue of an International Journal in the field of HCI.


Submission Deadline: January 13th, 2012
Author Notification: February 10th, 2012
Camera-Ready Deadline: April 1st, 2012
Workshop Date: May 5th or 6th, 2012 (to be confirmed on the web site)
